There are those that question , are some of us humanizing dogs too much?
When this is in reference to cute , frilly outfits,having for the most part owned Doberman’s, German Shepherds and other large breed dogs, cute, frilly or matching outfits are not my accessory of choice, but an occasional collar charm, a decorative bandana are not out of the question, and if the dogs decked out in pinks and frills enjoy oohs, aahs and extra attention because of it …why not?
When it comes to health care, I do have a strong opinion and that is I feel dogs deserve the best health benefits and treatments that pet owners and science can provide them. Every day their presence in our lives is scientifically proven to provide us with numerous life enhancing and medical benefits. Why would we not want to provide them with the same?
As science begins to recognize not only the long known and accepted emotional advantage of pets interaction with their people, but also the documented evidence of how the companionship of our pets lower blood pressure which in turn helps to prevent heart disease ,the health and wellness factor of pets is leading to even more in-depth benefits to human healthcare.
According to an article by the editor of Your Dog, American Association of Pet Product Manufactures, Pet interaction can even ultimately lower health care costs. Since stress has now been identified as one of the leading causes behind many diseases and scientific research has proven that pets lower stress levels.
Service dogs that can sense oncoming potentially life threatening medical conditions can alert their human in time to prevent a potentially more costly health crisis. Other studies our showing that autistic children are benefitting from close interaction with specially trained dogs.
So when I hear someone say, human grade ingredients , natural and organic treats and skin care products may be good for people , but are we going to far by integrating them into our dogs lifestyle, I have to reply , where would our lifestyle be without the enrichment of dogs in it?
Bamboo and Hemp have been in the canine news a lot lately and with good reason.
Hemp oil is touted for it’s nutritional value in supplements packing a high amount of linoleum acids, an omega-6 fatty acid essential for skin health to maintain a protective barrier between the outside and inside of the body.
As an oil, hemp actually has a superior ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 fatty acids, with the Omega 3 component being in a higher, correct ratio to the Omega 6 fatty acids. This actually makes hemp oil preferable and superior than flax seed oil, which has been long been the gold standard as an excellent source of Omega 3.
Hemp is also able to be made into a strong durable fiber. Since hemp has natural antifungal and antibacterial properties it is ideal for dog collars . Hemp is a fiber that breathes and hemp is grown without the use of pesticides it is especially good for sensitive skin.
Hemp is a sustainable crop; it grows well with out the aid of herbicides, fungicides or pesticides. Hemp can replace wood fiber and save forests for watershed, wildlife habitat, recreation, oxygen production and carbon sequestration-reducing global warming.
For the most part, hemp is grown without pesticides because it is a much hardier plant which makes it less vulnerable to insects, pests, drought, mildew, and other poor growing conditions. Therefore, it is easier to grow organically without pesticides and other chemicals. In this regard, hemp is good for the environment and our bodies.
